Recover Energy While You Race

From the designer of this ingenious energy recovering lamp comes the Pirelli La Cinetica Racing Bike which offers the same efficiency for serious riders. While peddling, the carbon and steel wheel rotates around a circular brush. This causes an electric direct current to build, which feeds into a capacitor located at the bottom of the frame. When demanded by the rider, the stored charge is used on a motor located at the front of the frame. The energy feedback system allows the rider to rest while the bike propels itself!
